Okay so this weekend's sewing extravaganza didn't turn out exactly how I planned it, but I did manage to spend a few quiet hours curled up with a cuppa, a cosy blanket and one of my ongoing works-in-progress - sewing lots and lots and lots (and lots) of poppies:
I've been working on this mega-batch for a while now - eventually all those poppies will become brooches and hairbands and bracelets. It's a lovely relaxing project where I don't have to cut out complicated pieces or have to think about "what colour next?"... so it's perfect for those times when I'm feeling tired or uninspired or just need to sit and chill out for a couple of hours!
I'm currently loving the look of the white poppies all stacked up like this:
Pssst - if you're still in the mood for a giveaway after this week's freebie please go visit my fellow felt-lover The Rainbow Room who is giving away two postcards, a felt bracelet and a felted soap to one lucky commenter... and my lovely sponsor Red Ruby Rose who is launching her great new blog by giving away one of her clutches! Say hi from me :)
